I'll post a link to the Seeds review once I receive the item and test it out.  I'll be testing it with both the 5ah battery it comes with as well as the larger battery that came with my 21" Ego mower.

Can't wait to hear your feedback, Steve!

BTW, what is the Seeds review program? Never heard of it?

Congrats on nabbing something so good—the best Seeds products all seem to go so fast! Was this a premium item?

I've gotten several of my Ego products through Seeds and had been watching for this blower the last month or two. Unfortunately I didn't get an invite to the August campaign because I'm a bit behind on reviewing a few products from the last two months.

For anyone who might be wondering what the Seeds program is... https://seeds.homedepot.com/support/faqs

Yeah, this was my Premium item for the month.  I actually was hoping for a fancy expensive fridge/freezer, the $7000 grill on HD's site or a garage tool chest or garage shelving kit before I saw the Ego blower.

I definitely understand your issue being behind on reviews.  I've got an electrician coming out tomorrow so I can do the review of the whole-house surge protector.  And the wife decided she was going to paint the bathroom again after we had already requested a new bathroom vanity through Seeds haha!

I'm actually hoping that Ego offers some of their brand new snow blowers on Seeds come September since my current electric snow thrower broke a plastic part used to turn the nozzle within 5 minutes of first wintertime use.

Aha! So you guys are those "Top XXX Reviewers" I'm always seeing. Nice! Too bad we don't have that up here in the frozen white north... :-(

Well, it took a while (thanks to a lower back surgery to remove a tumor from my spine) to get the blower tested and review photos and video taken, but it's finally up.  Check it out on Home Depot's product page here:

Just watched your video @Steve Warren.  Man... If I blew all of my leaves/lawn debris into the street, the city would have a field day on me!  Lucky guy.

Yeah, well the city doesn't seem to care much about neighborhood streets. First winter at the house we ended up with 3 feet thick ice at the end of our driveway because they never plowed snow for 3 weeks.

Nice review Steve, and good luck coming back after the surgery! It must kill you to see someone else playing with your toys!!!

Thank you!  It wasn't easy, but my father-in-law has been very helpful with some projects around the house over the years.  Helps with wife's parents living on next street over though!
